Am I alone in being confused by this? Aishwariya Rai apparently received some parcel with some money. She says it isn’t hers. Goes to the custom office. Fine till here. She is to meet a certain Mr Prasad of Additional Commissioner of Customs, Special Investigation and Intelligence Branch (SIIB). Which also sounds reasonable. But what amazed me is the fabulous skill with which our Mr Prasad determines the proceedings.
When asked, Prasad said that Rai was looking nervous. “Only the innocent person is nervous when called for questioning. The guilty comes confidently,” said Prasad hinting that Rai is innocent in the case. He also said that for the time being the Customs has given her clean chit.
Rai’s lawyer Girish Kulkarni claimed that she was not at all nervous. “You are nervous only if you are any way linked,” said Kulkarni.
Someone tell Rai’s lawyer to please state that Rai’s nerves were strung like harp’s. He isn’t going to get anywhere by contradicting Mr Prasad’s opinion. Next time you want to do something funny with the Customs – just look shit-nervous. That shall be your redemption.
